I believe the UTV idents will be updated from tomorrow the 1st of July to the 'summer set', so it's bye bye to 'windy beach', 'bottle-fed lamb', 'bowling alley', 'florist' and 'hook a duck', and I expect it will be 'suncream slapped onto back', 'dive bombing into pool', 'amazing big hats' + a couple more I can't recall at the moment we will have to endure bring played out in the same ordered loop pattern for the next 3 months (July-Sept).
The 3 'opt-out' idents will remain I expect, so 'Gymnastics' will opt-out the ident loop when its news, 'Pigeons' will remain for 'strong warnings', (i.e. upsetting scenes, violence, scenes which some viewers may find distressing), and 'welders' for more 'softer warnings' (strong language and adult humour).
Then the excitement of UTV's 60th draws ever closer, so who knows what we will get presentation wise? I hope we get some leaks to what they have planned at some point.....but as long as the ever professional and longstanding Julian and Gillian remain as the voices of the channel, then all will be good and UTV will continue to put to shame the awful announcers the BBC, ITV Network and C4 use these days.
I was told by UTV that there are plans for a 60th anniversary special in October. That is all they said.
